    Penetrating Trauma

    For me this has been the best I have found showing exactly what gun shot wounds do to people. The treatment and success of repairing these injuries is pretty impressive.

    Oh God. Now I remember why I went to engineering school instead of medical school.

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    Hope I never get shot. Survival rates are very high, but the disabilities can last forever.

    You know, when i was around 7 or 8, my dad had me come with him; he had the .22 I learned to shoot with him.

    There was a cottontail by the garden; I was to shoot it.

    I did.

    I've been under no illusions to what bullets do in flesh and bone ever since.

    Visually, one can get over the shock. Though, sometimes the smell can be overwhelming...
    A wise man once said: "Bugout bag?..What's that? Is that all the junk you sidewalk commandos plan on humping when the SHTF...I'll grab a Nylon 66, a box of 22s and a poncho liner and in less than a week I will have all of your stuff and everything else that I need for the duration."

    These are the far end of the spectrum. Very, very few of the shootings I work look anything like this. And of those that do, the majority are dead before I get there, so I don't actually work them, either.

    Any penetrating wound can look horrific . Shrapnel wounds are especially so.

    Of all the shootings I worked as an LEO, only one came close to what is displayed here, It was a closerange shotgun blast to a males abdomen and it was pretty gnarly looking. everything else was handguns, both ball and JHP, and all of them were just a small hole and maybe a trickle of blood. The exit wounds, on the otherhand, could be rather impressive but still not look like these images. The closest I saw to any of this was several knife wounds.... now those are a gnarly wound in every way. There is nothing like seeing fat flesh and intestine hanging out of a 6 inch gash on a victims belly....

    Probably not by chance that they seem to have chosen photos of shotgun wounds from birdshot.

The character inherent in the American people has done all that has been accomplished; and it would have done somewhat more, if the government had not sometimes got in its way."

    This is why I don't like birdshot.

    Knarly. I have seen some of this stuff first hand, and it is never pretty. People do not realize that the nifty hole, as in a Hollywood movie, does not exist most of the time. Well, from the exit side anyways.
    I would rather die on my feet, than to live on my knees.

    Oh, I don't know. I always thought that the semi-tractor/trailer vs. pedestrians or motorcyclists were worse in that regard. (Think explosive abdominal evisceration)

    Now that is 'stopping power'.
